Planned on taking today as a rest day but with the week off work i was feeling extremely bored! Got a solid 8 hours sleep last night & a couple of hours nap this afternoon so felt well rested and headed to the gym

60kg x 4
90kg x 3
110kg x 3
130kg x 2
150kg x 1
165kg 5x5
This felt very comfy, legs are strongest theyve ever been no doubt

Leg press
150kg x 10
220kg x 10
260kg x 8
300kg x 8 - think this was +3 reps on last week

Lying leg curls
100lbs x 12
120lbs x 10
130lbs x 8
140lbs x 8
145lbs x 7

Calf press
150kg 4 sets of 10 reps
100kg x 12

Then a nice mile & a half walk home to finish, all uphill Grin Very confident a big PB is there on the squat but dont really have to desire right now to max out in the gym. Think a better goal would be to triple my current max, will attempt either next week or the week after. So happy with how training is going recently, bodyweight is up to 92.5kg im pretty sure that has something to do with it. The goal is to slowly work up to around 110kg over the next couple of years to fill out the U105kg class.

Good little session, definitely feel like biceps are the limiting factor for stones atm so need to beef them up a lot. Plus the tricep work should carryover into overhead stuff nicely

Pause bench
60 2x5
110 5x5

Pause incline bench

Floor press
My bench seems to have a sticking point right in the middle, hoping these will help

DB flies (slight incline)
15's 2x12

Was gonna call it a day here but felt like getting a bit more practice with the DB

Circus DB press
15 x 3 reps each arm
25 x 3 reps each arm
35 x 3 reps each arm
45 x 3 reps each arm - this was a PB with the left
48 x fail with the left
48 x 3 with the right
55 x 1 with the right - very easy, could rep
60 x fail with the right
Fairly happy, if I can get the DB set right on the shoulder the press is no problem. The 60kg was just too big to get set right, was actually really close though anyway. The collars weigh about 0.9 kg each as well, so technically failed with 61.8kg just can't be bothered calling it that lol

» Paused squat weight vs regular (Go to post)01-04-2016 @ 00:12 
Did 155kg x 5 two weeks ago paused, 175kg x 5 this week regular squats. So about 20kg or just over 10% drop

The plan during yesterday's squat session was to hit 165kg for sets of 5. I knew it was going to be a challenge because the best I've ever done is 1 set of 5. Got 5 reps the first set, was pretty tough and I wasn't sure I was going to hit another. Busted out the camera and grinded out another five reps, was my absolute limit. Left it there relatively content to have hit one more set than last time. Was watching the footage back tonight, counted the plates up and I realised it was actually 175kg! I think if I'd have known that before the sets I would never have hit 5 reps. Just goes to show the power of the mind, and the limitations we can put in our own heads

Good session today mate, you deffo have that 240 deadlift in you. Looks like we'll need to be pulling 260 now for the yorkshires!
